Well done to our U12’s who had a very hard fought win over John Locke’s on Monday 8th July at home in the League. It was a very close game with neither team winning by much at any stage. The work rate and determination that the girls showed especially in the last 10 minutes was fantastic to see.
All players dug deep to come out with the win on a scoreline of 6-3 to 5-1. Thank you to all who came to support the girls, our next game is on 22nd July. Details to follow!
